“Jesus Visited the Americas”
Read about this story in 3 Nephi 8–11
In the Book of Mormon, a prophet named Samuel taught people about Jesus. He said a bright star would shine when Jesus was born.
Some people believed the prophet and watched for the star. One night, the new star appeared! It was a sign that Jesus had been born in a land far away.
Years went by. One day the whole earth seemed sad. There were earthquakes and storms. It was a sign that Jesus had died.
The land stayed dark for three days. Then something wonderful happened. Jesus came to visit the Nephites and Lamanites! He was resurrected, which means He was alive again. He spent time with each person, one by one.
Jesus knows who I am. He can help me during dark and scary times. He is the Light of the World!
